- Somethings never change - don't be one of them

- Some people have an excuse for everything

The ultimate truth:

- You are not what you think you are - but - WHAT YOU THINK, YOU ARE!

What I am is what I am.
Are you what you are - or what?
I'm not aware of too many things,
but I know what I know if you know what I mean.

Religion is the smile on a dog"

Fun thread!

This is so true:
cheapest, fastest, best - you may always have any 2 - but never have all 3

And the corollary, if you're in business offering a service, you can offer all 3 for a short while, but you'll soon run the business into the ground.

Ask my wife--it (the equation) changes as you age: I am cheap (there is no doubt), and now, it just so happens, that being fast, is best.

Don't ask for anymore information, as it will go downhill fast.

And you, Casey Jones, are usually to be found hanging out of the loco's cabin tooting your whistle.

You'd scream too if you stumbled on WT polishing his engine.
